Hi,
I have been searching the internet like crazy looking for a miniature jersey breeder in Canada!! There has to be someone. There are lots in the states but I don't want to bother with importing. It sounds like a headache. I'm even open to a mid-size!
Would love to hear what there is! We would like one for 2013, or possibly this summer too!
Thank you Smile

Good luck in your search Chickadee I have been searching for years. I am the same, too scared of the importing thing, but it can be done. A friend of mine just imported Zebu's so mini jerseys can be done too.
If you ever get a line on some I would sure like to know.

Wow, maybe that can be a new mission for me! The only problem with that is I'd want to bring two heifer calves and that ,might cost up to $6000 to $8000 Shocked I would just import semen from other lines.
Do you have any ideas why nobody has taken the initiative to start a herd up here? Seems like they'd sell really well. One farm in the states has a waiting list for 2014 already!!
I think us Canadians like milk and little cows as much as the states do! lol
Do you know where to start looking for importing?

Another great site is INTERNATIONAL MINIATURE CATTLE
http://www.minicattle.com

You could always make them yourself like they did
Take a real small mini Dexter and breed to a small Jersey and go on from there
on the site there is informaton on breeding to get Mini's

There is a Guy named Garnet Gallant
in Nova Scotia that has some Mini breeds if you can get a hold of him maybe he could help
